A series of paintings contending with competing conceptions of masculinity and the complexities of identity by artist Paul Richmond from Monterey, California. As he describes:
“I have felt at odds with traditional notions of masculinity my entire life. What it means to be a man in 2018 is different than what I was taught growing up in the early 1980’s. Since painting is my way of understanding the world, this series of all-male portraits is an exploration of masculinity in a variety of manifestations – from the toxic to the fragile.”
